    Pressure Cooker Spanish Chickpeas and Tomatoes over Rice

    8 ounce dried chickpeas
    1 28 ounce can whole San Marzano tomatoes, cut up (undrained)
    1 14.5 ounce can reduced-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth
    cup chopped red onion
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    teaspoon smoked paprika
    teaspoon ground coriander
    teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    teaspoon dried dill weed
    teaspoon salt
    teaspoon black pepper
    2 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 5 ounce pkg. baby spinach
    Hot cooked brown rice
    cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
    4 ounce goat cheese (chevre)


    In a 4- to 5-qt. Dutch oven soak beans, covered, in 8 cups cold water in a cool place overnight. Drain and rinse.*

    Place drained chickpeas and the next ten ingredients (through black pepper) in a 4- to 6-quart electric or stove-top pressure cooker. Lock lid in place. Set an electric cooker on high pressure to cook 15 minutes. For a stove-top cooker, bring to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady pressure. Cook 15 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, let stand 15 minutes to release pressure naturally. Carefully open lid.

    Stir in lemon juice and spinach. Cover and let stand 3 minutes or until spinach is wilted. Serve over rice. Top with parsley and goat cheese.

    *Quick-soaking method

    In a 4- to 5-qt. Dutch oven combine chickpeas and 8 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer 2 minutes; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 1 hour.

    Charlene’s notes 1-14-2023: Very good, followed the recipe exactly and served it on brown rice.

    TY Charlene. We love everything in it. I have to get a few things. Really caught my ear when you said it would be a good cold side. I have an electric pressure cooker and I love it.
    you always have the most interesting food.

      You’re welcome rosie! It was really good heated and over rice, but I’m enjoying it more as a cold side salad. Don’t you just love electric pressure cookers? No guesswork at all!

        Yes I do. No freaking out or watching pressure. Thanks again
